Patchwork with Stitchery SAL: May

We are nearly at the end of another month which means that this week is the May link up for the 'Patchwork with Stitchery' sew-a-long hosted by Martina at Sunshine Quilting.  My contribution for the sew-a-long this month is another of the pretty 'United Stitches' blocks I have been working on.



These pretty little stitcheries are designed by Rosalie Dekker (Quinlan) and are just perfect for sitting and stitching in the evenings.  That said, I only got one stitched this month as I have been busy working on some other projects one of which I hope to be showing you very soon!



I have prepared the next embroidery ready for stitching and, I am looking forward to stitching it as, I already know how pretty it is going to look.



Leanne, a dear blogger friend who I swapped Christmas gifts with last year included this particular embroidery pattern on the front of the bag she made me.



The bag is lovely and, it holds all sorts of useful bits and pieces in my sewing room. I love seeing it there on a daily basis.

  8. How wonderful and I just think the star around adds such a sweet "taste". And the different stitches add a lot of extra interest too. I already look forward to your next one. Have a wonderful weekend, hugs Martina

  9. I always love your stitcheries, and I like the way you include them in your projects. The stitchery looks nice as the middle of that star and also on the little bag.
